Arsenal could bank £158.87million from summer transfer window clear-out

Arsenal could be set for a major summer clear-out.

Arsenal could reportedly be set to embark upon a major summer clear-out that raises as much as £158.87million.

This is according to a detailed report from football.london, which names Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Sead Kolasinac, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mohamed Elneny as the players who could be offloaded.

Using valuations from the ever-reliable Transfermarkt database, football.london suggest that cashing in on those names could raise a very decent chunk of money for the club – around £158.87m.

Given the financial damage the coronavirus outbreak seems likely to do to every football club, it perhaps makes sense to plan sales of some squad players who aren’t contributing enough.

Most of those names mentioned would not be too badly missed, though of course the sale of Aubameyang would be a difficult blow to deal with.

But, as noted by football.london, it would make sense for the Gunners to try to cash in on the Gabon international while they can before he becomes a free agent in the summer of 2021.

    We have to cash in on him if he will not sign a new deal!

    Unfortunately the obvious choices are not on that list:ozil( seemingly impossible to shift),Hacker( where are you Hertha Berlin?) & Lacazette ( A.Madrid ? )

    In the present economic climate,realistically I doubt if Arsenal would get more than 90m for the players listed.

    1. Francis says:

      Definitely more than 90 million if you account for their wages as well…

    The names of Xhaka and Ozil not in that list. I’d be very much disappointed if the two guys dont leave The Emirates
